New Batch of Photos Show Lighter Side of Roman Polanski's 'Carnage'
Back in March, we got our first look at Roman Polanski's promising new film Carnage, an adaptation of the stage play God of Carnage which follows two sets of parents, played by John C. Reilly, Jodie Foster, Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz, brought together very suddenly by an altercation between their respective children. While it sounded like the film would be pretty dramatic in its execution of the parents' meeting which ultimately crumbles, some new photos show the lighter/comical side of the film with Foster spraying flowers with perfume to give them a scent, and Waltz blow-drying Reilly's cell phone. View below!
From Knife in the Water to Repulsion to The Tenant, French filmmaker Roman Polanski has shown himself to be an absolute master at making the most restricted spaces come to dramatic life. In Carnage, aided by four remarkable performances, he has "reached a new pinnacle in his already extraordinary career." The screenplay for Carnage was adapted from Yasmina Reza's highly acclaimed stage play God of Carnage by both Reza and Polanski. This was shot entirely in Paris, produced by SBS Productions and Constantin Film. Sony Pictures Classics is handling US distribution, and is bringing Carnage to theaters this fall, starting November 18th. It's hitting the Venice Film Festival and opens the New York Film Fest, but not Toronto.
